Fundraiser will benefit former WHS teacher

By on January 14, 2015

The Warwick Boys Basketball Parent’s Association along with the Interact Club are holding a fundraiser in honor of Curt Morris, a long time favorite teacher at Warwick High School. The event is set for Jan. 22 at 7:30 p.m. during the basketball game at Warwick High School.

Those who attend the match vs. McCaskey are encouraged to wear purple in honor of Alzheimer’s patients; t-shirts will be sold at school and at the game.

Unlike most Alzheimer’s patients, Curt was diagnosed at the age of 46, in the prime of his life. A well loved social studies teacher and respected among his peers, Curt taught at Warwick for 15 years until he was forced to retire during the 2010 school year. His wife Sandy is currently a special education teacher at Warwick. Their son Tyler, Class of 2013, was a part of the Warwick basketball family for seven years and is currently a sophomore at Liberty University where he is a member of the baseball team. Their daughter Madi is senior at Warwick where she plays lacrosse and is an active member of Interact, National Honor Society and the Lititz LEOs.

The parents’ association will be collecting funds to help offset the costs of Curt’s long term care, as he is currently in a memory care facility. To learn more, call 283-8668.
